Not bad Thork, after such a hurting hit getting upright again so fast.
Will be a thrilling battle.
Thork may have an edge if godlike powers are used, but in a straight up battle, Skadi will clean his clock.
Thork hasn’t, as far as we know, gone hand to hand with an equal before whereas that’s Skadi’s main occupation.
The battle finally begins I’M GETTING SOME POPCORN !
That is the most impressive thing we’ve seen from Thork. Getting thorked in the ‘nads by Goddess Skadi and getting back up almost immediately … Finally some god-like power out of him.
These two are about to rearrange the terrain. Stuff legends are made from.
It would be interesting if (some day) The Order of the Stick told this legend around a campfire or something.
Skadi is an actual norse god(see the 2013 comic ‘which is it’). I don’t think the occurance of the name in OOTS is a reference.
Yep. Well-aware of Skadi and Skadi.
As I recall, discussion at the time tOotS did the Temple of Skadi reference (and discussion since), it was a an inside joke/tribute to Skadi. It’s been long enough that I might be confused on that, but I don’t think so. Will have to deep archive dive and read surviving comments when time permits to confirm … but I’ve suspected for a while now that this ‘final arc’ of Skadi the comic is designed to tie into that.
Just letting it play out and enjoying it right now.
Thank you, Katie!
The Nits are running in different directions. If they continue, they will live their lives with different experiences and may become two very different identical people. Interesting…
P.S. It’s weird pluralizing a proper noun.
Hey! What if it’s like that Trek episode where a transporter oops split Kirk into a good Kirk and a bad Kirk? We could see a good Nit and a bad Nit.
Luckily, Thork’s balls were up on a shelf at the time.
Aw what a lovely birthday present. Thanks, Katie!
I was upset when you announced that Skadi was going to come to an end; but you have done such a great job closing it out. I felt the need to post and say thanks for doing her justice.
It’s been said by others, but yeah… Thork bouncing back immediately from that kick to the nuts is impressive. He may be lazy and stupid, but he *IS* a legit barbarian god of war.
The low blow is so barbaric. Well done!
Que the God of War soundtrack!!
To kick one’s own god straight up into his jimmy-jams is nothing, if not heroic. She’s clearly earned her beard, as well as a place in the Pantheon of Skadi’s consumptive religion.
I started reading Skadi 2 days ago and now It’s ending?
Oh well, it’s really good and inspired me a lot!
